In Vain

Isaiah 53-55, Psalm 128, 1 Corinthians 15

My wife suggested that if I lose a little weight, I would snore less.  So I exercised.  I kept eating ice cream and cookies.  My exercise was in vain.

I wanted to be a millionaire, so I set out to make a lot of money.  Then I bought cars and houses and boats and stuff.  My work was in vain.

I wanted a college education, so I went to college.  I partied and played.  I got my degree, but the education was in vain.

I heard the Good News.  I stand in it.  Through it, I am saved.  Unless, I believed in vain (1 Cor 15:1-2).

If I believed in vain, then Jesus gave me great grace in vain (1 cor 15:10).
